So I stumbled upon an interesting link while perusing Twitter that led to a blog entry with the same title that I gave this one. The challenge at the end (as well as the blog itself) was both fascinating and terrifying, and this is perhaps the most difficult thing I’ve ever written.
I LOVE my determination to turn setbacks into opportunities.
I LOVE that I know the value of enjoying games and hobbies.
I LOVE my brain and the way it sees the world.
I LOVE my dry, twisted sense of humor.
I LOVE my love and appreciation for art.
I LOVE being a good friend.
I LOVE being able to face my problems with a blend of logic and empathy.
I LOVE being good with children, and my ability to make them smile.
I LOVE the peace I feel from music.
I LOVE that I’m taking steps towards lifelong dreams and goals.
I LOVE that I’m there when my loved ones need me.
I LOVE ME.
I challenge everyone who reads this to write down how they love themselves today.
Now I’m going to hit publish before I succumb to my self-conscious impulse to delete this whole entry. Great exercise in acknowledging the positive though, which we should all do more often.
